Stars come out for Tottenham Carnival
The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London staffed a fun-packed stall at one of Tottenhamâ€™s top community events on Saturday (19 June), the Tottenham Carnival.
Proud to have sponsored the Carnival for the tenth year running, staff and students from the College were busily setting up from early morning, ready to give out information and guidance on courses to carnival goers once the procession reached Bruce Castle Park.
Nail Technician Level 2 students offered free nail art, Beauty Therapy Level 2 students offered carnival-style face painting and the College’s Hair styling students offered hair braiding to long queues of locals throughout the day who took full advantage of the opportunity to be pampered.
Carnival stars, including the Carnival King and Queen Gerald and Agatha White, Cirque Nova Performers: Jessica Burn, Naomi Lynch and Clive Beckford; carnival dancers Naomi and Chante from St Anne’s RC School and David Lammy MP made visits to the College’s busy stall.
Lakeesha Williams, who plans to study her Nursing - Access to Higher Education Diploma at the College in September, said: “This is great, I’m going out this evening and now I can feel that extra bit special because I’ve had my nails done.”
Veronica Sarfo, who plans to study as a nail technician at the College and her daughter, Anna, who hopes to become a doctor, got their nails painted in style, too.
Director of Learner Recruitment, Howard Jeffrey MBE, who was helping to run the stall, said: “The College is proud to support our local community and to take part in such enjoyable events. The College provides essential skills and employment opportunities and at Carnival we are able to meet local people and give them advice on which study and training options are best for them.”
